Thailand is cool. Went to the beach today. Alcohol is nice it's nice getting out of a country where it's practically illegal but now I've drinken too much and I told my girlfriend about Thai ping pong shows (I mean she would be down for a transsexual cabaret but Thai ping pong show is bad). I think I've become more liberal than my super liberal girlfriend help me I need you rush Limbaugh. Anyway now I'm doing damage control wish me luck.
This place is amazing.
So in a month I'm pretty sure everyone is going to mecca. That means I get a week off and should go somewhere.
The group of friends and I have pretty much narrowed down to India and Thailand. Probably go to new Delhi or Bangkok.
India has got the cool Hindu and Sikh stuff, but that Buddhism stuff can be pretty dope too.
Thailand has amazing beaches, I don't know anything about Indian beaches...
I'm taking 15 (engineering) hours this semester and the school requires me to do 10 hours a week of tutoring.
Why? The extra $100 or so a week will be nice, but that's kinda a lot of shizzle to do in my opinion.
Yea so I got to Qatar no problem. My resident hall is fancier than any hotel I've ever been in (my window pane is made out of marble, awesome stone shower, lights and temperature is all touch controlled), people are pretty cool, weather is even hotter than Texas (110 with over 50% humidity????).
School also gave me a brand new Thinkpad X230T. It has both a touch screen and pen with wacom pressure support, so this is pretty awesome.
My room is equipped with a 40" 1080p 3D TV, been playing burnout paradise with my computer hooked up, that's pretty fun.
The drivers in the country are terrible.
I'm taking 15 hours this semester. Electrical circuit design, technical writing, statics, some math class, and engineering economics.
Think that's it. This semester is gonna be pretty sweet.
I really want to drive down to mexico and go AWOL for a while. I think that would be pretty cool, just hanging out on the beach doing whatever I want.
Too bad all the border towns have gone to shizzle and the nearest decent place is 18 hours away from bottom of Texas. Looks like I'll be settling for South Padre.
Tuesday/Thursday I ahve class from 9:30 until 5. Wednesday from 9:10 until 5 (with breaks in between). One class at 4pm on monday and none on friday.
I may immediately regret this, but it's kind of just how everything fit in...
